Let's behave

Let's behave

By Marcin Konkel & Jarek Nuszczyński
In school, people told us to behave in class. We think we should act with class yet on our own terms. Our bodies have communicated with one another since the beginning of our existence, and it's high time we all use this knowledge to navigate conflicts, negotiations or understand others (and ourselves) better. Let's behave in a way that expresses what we want to convey.

We tackle lying, social engineering, non-verbal cues through neurobiology, the subconscious mind, linguistics and more. We work as consultants thus many of the stories we tell really happened yet their details were changed.
